Merry Christmas

Every Christmas I like to journal a few special momments to remember because I swear the older I get the less I remember. This is a sweet memory from last year.

Christmas 2007
I had a small sweet blessing this Christmas morning from my daughter Lydia. She is 7 and all she wanted from Santa this year was a MP3 player and a bell from Santa's sleigh…she loves the Polar Express. Her older cousins have been teasing her about Santa. I remembered that I had this old sleigh bell with no dinger (don't remember what that thing is called??) I bought it for .25 cents at a flea market for something???? It is about the size of a baseball and has a little old crack in it. I was able to squeeze a tiny jingle bell inside and it sounds magical. It was tucked in her stocking. When she found it on Christmas she cried, almost sobbed with happiness. She ran over to me and hugged me so tight. It even brought a few tears to my husbands eyes. Her joy this Christmas morning is one I will treasure always. She is my little blessing from God.

Thank you God for the joy you give us. Thank you for the gift of grace demonstrated by the indescribable gift of your Son! Wishing you all a truly Merry Christmas.
